Re: NEX 7 Lenses
In reply to gbert15, May 3, 2012

I have the following lenses that I use on my NEX-7:
Sony E 16mm F2.8
Zeiss Sonnar E 24mm F1.8
Zeiss Biogon ZM 35mm F2.0 (via adapter)
Sony E 50mm F1.8 OSS
Zeiss Sonnar ZM 50mm F1.5 (via adapter)
Canon FD 85mm F1.8 (via adapter)

Of those, I use the native E-mount Zeiss 24/1.8 and the manual focus M-mount Zeiss 50/1.5 for the vast majority of my photos. They complement each other extremely well, not only due to their focal lengths, but also in the different rendering styles. The 24/1.8 is more neutral, the 50/1.5 more expressive, especially wide open.

These two lenses are my kit when I'm traveling, although I may also take the 16/2.8 just to have some wide angle capability. I don't particularly like the files the pancake lens produces, so I'll try framing with the shot with the Zeiss 24/1.8 first. Hopefully we won't have to wait too much longer for a high quality wide angle solution.
